If you’re wondering when the Phillies last played in October — that is, made the playoffs — here you go:
Phillies — Oct. 4, 2011, NLDS Game 3
The Phillies looked well on their way after taking a 2-1 series lead on an upstart Cardinals team with a 3-2 victory in Game 3.
But three days later, Ryan Howard fell to the ground with a ruptured Achilles tendon while making the final out in this 3-2 nail-biter of a series loss.
The Phillies have not reached the postseason since.
